Give the Gift of Safe Driving and Car Maintenance this Year with Zubie

This post brought to you by Zubie. All opinions are 100% mine.
I take driving seriously, very seriously. I am a stickler for road rules and you won't see me going more than three miles over the speed limit. I have never had a ticket and I used to drive a cab for several years. Safe driving isn't the only thing that matters to me though, car maintenance and health is a big deal too. Why? Well, as you all might remember, the boys and I drove over 7,000 miles in 50 days this past summer on our road trip, and this next summer's trip is shaping up to be even bigger. I need the car to run smoothly and get us safely through all our adventures. That's where Zubie comes in.

{What is Zubie?}

Zubie is a unique combination of a smart device called a key and a smartphone app that helps you keep track of your vehicles maintenance and health needs, as well as your location, driving skills and so much more. How does it work? The smart device referred to as the Zumbie Key is about the size of a matchbox, and plugs into a standard port in your vehicle. It then keeps track of information and transmits it to the Zubie smartphone app. Check out this video about Zubie.

{What Can Zubie Do?}

You would be better off asking what Zubie can't do, but since my goal is to show you how awesome Zubie is, here is a short run down of what it can do.
  • Transates the check engine light codes into plain English so you know what is wrong with your vehicle.
  • Tracks battery levels and alerts you before there is a dead battery problem.
  • Alerts you to codes being transmitted from your engine and lets you know there is a problem.
  • Monitors driving habits to improve fuel efficiency.
  • Knows how serious a potential maintenance problem may be and can give you an estimate of how much it will cost to fix.
  • Allows you to coordinate trips with your friends through the app and location services.
  • Can monitor and coach teen drivers.
  • Has real-time location tracking.
No matter what your age or driving skill level, Zubie has a feature that would make it an asset to your vehicle. For me, the most important features right now revolve around letting me know when there is a potential problem with my vehicle. I can't afford to break down on a deserted road somewhere during one of our adventures. In a few years when my boys are old enough to start driving, the location tracking and teen driver skill's coaching features will come in handy to make sure the boys aren't up to no good.

I will be recieving a Zubie key and app service, and in the coming months I am excited to have the chance to share more about this great device and how it works with you. I am really looking forward to seeing how it operates and how accurate it is.
